Product Description:

The PAC course is a truncated version of physical science (#069873), with fewer lessons and labs using materials from around the home or otherwise easily accessible. This course requires the text Conceptual Physical Science Text, 6th ed, #069824.

Publisher Description:

This is a rich and inspiring introductory physical science course with a focus on the concepts of physics, astronomy, and chemistry. For physics, this includes Newton's Laws, momentum, energy, gravity, and the mechanics of orbital motion followed by fluids, heat and electricity. Students will explore the nature of sound and light as well as atoms and the source atomic energy. This sets the stage for an exploration of the basic concepts of astronomy, which include a study of our solar system, stars, galaxies, and the universe as a whole. With an understanding of how the elements of the periodic table are synthesized within stars, and with a background in physics, the student is set to explore the basic concepts of chemistry including chemical bonding, mixtures, chemical reactions, and organic chemistry. Includes all the resources of the more comprehensive full version listed above such as a complete set of labs requiring materials that can be obtained from home or a local discount store.

The Conceptual Science textbook series along with Conceptual Self-Study Online courses provide a wonderful option for science at the higher levels. These thorough texts are a super option for a secular science text. a La Carte editions of these texts are unbound, 3-hole punched (you provide a binder) versions of the full text that let you take out only what you need (rather than carrying the whole text), and the margins are wider for notetaking purposes.

Conceptual Academy is an online option that offers flexibility, rigor, and content-rich courses for a solid science curriculum. The authors of the Conceptual Science textbooks have created these video tutorials to complement their texts and are a great option for independent learners. These are self-study courses in which the author becomes the instructor. "FYI" pages within the course help with frequently asked questions. There are worksheets, chapter summaries, and unit exams with directions on how to take them using the collaborative "pyramid" format. Hands-on activities within the textbook can serve as the labs. The courses can be accessed from laptops and desktop computers, and 'mobile links' are posted with each video lesson that allow play on mobile devices. The textbook must be purchased separately.

 The sequence of these texts and courses are as follows: Physical Science Explorations and Integrated Science Explorations at the junior high level, then Conceptual Physics, Conceptual Chemistry, then Conceptual Biology (still in development. If beginning this series at the high school level, then the student should begin with upper level Conceptual Physical Science before going on to physics, chemistry, and biology. Please note that the complete course requres purchase of the textbook AND the online course. Older edition textbooks can be used with some modification.
